Since it is a Leap Year this year, we wanted to do some fun Leap Year Learning activities. We made a Leap Frog Math Game with jumping origami frogs that was a HUGE hit with my kids. They played with it for a long time. First, I will show you how we made our jumping paper frogs.
How to Play Leap Frog Math:
To play leap frog math, we made some jumping origami frogs. I will teach you how in a second. Then I used coffee filters with some openings cut out. These are the lily pads for the frogs. I wrote the numbers 1-10 on the lily pads.
Then the kids take turns jumping their frogs month the lily pads. They write down their numbers and tally them up to see who has the highest score.
You can play this a few different ways to practice math skills. You can do an addition one and then they each get 10 jumps.
You can do a multiplication version where they get 2 jumps at a time and multiply them together.
You could also do a subtraction version and try to get the lowest (or highest) score.
It was a loud math game, but it was really a lot of fun!
